Inspired by a dish from my hometown, I created this easy miso lime glazed salmon recipe with a citrus crema. This savory twist on a classic salmon dish pairs well with roasted veggies and sticky rice.

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 400° F. Prepare a baking sheet with foil and lightly grease.

  • Step 2

    In a small saucepan over low heat, whisk together mirin, miso paste, soy sauce, brown sugar, and lime juice. Leave on low heat to simmer and thicken.

  • Step 3

    Heat a well-oiled pan over medium-high heat. Add salmon filets face down to get a good sear. This may take 2-3 minutes per side. Then, remove from heat.

  • Step 4

    Place the salmon filets on the baking sheet. Spoon about half of the glaze onto the salmon.

  • Step 5

    Bake in the preheated over for about 10 minutes or until cooked to your liking.

  • Step 6

    While the salmon cooks, prepare the crema. Whisk together the mayonnaise, citrus juice, a dollop of wasabi, and some salt and pepper to taste.

  • Step 7

    Remove salmon from oven.

  • Step 8

    Plate! Spoon the remaining glaze over the top of the salmon and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Drizzle crema over top. This dish pairs well with sticky rice and roasted green beans and carrots.
